The Christchurch cathedral used to be one of the famous landmarks of the city. After the second earthquake the tower collapsed and destroyed big parts of the main building. The cathedral is in the red zone of the city, which is the restricted area without access to the public. (Photo by Geof Wilson. BY-NC-ND License)
Tonight I will fly down to Christchurch for the annual Handball Tournament. It will be the first time for me to visit this city since the big earthquakes. The tournament is only on Saturday, which leaves me some time to have a look around the city on Sunday. I assume the inner part of Christchurch to be still closed. Nevertheless, I’ll take my camera with me just in case.
Anyway, the main reason will be the tournament. It will be a very hard one for us, since we don’t have many players and lacked a little bit of practice. But let’s make the best out of it. 5 Teams will be there this year, so the playing mode will be a round robin without finals.
